Vista Very Disappointing

Take plenty of money if you are on Vista. It was the worst Carnival cruise we have done. Can you imagine you pay extra 6 bucks for fish and chips for lunch. We never met our cabin staff and the reflections restaurant was like some sort of cafe in a department store. The food and the service was about the same. There were no TV movies but if you want to see a movie in the theater you pay. You ...

Excellent Ship

we choose the Carnival Vista as it is the newest ship in the Carnival fleet and we also wanted to do this cruise from Athens. The service was excellent from the time that we entered the check-in at the port to the time that we collected our luggage in Barcelona. We couldn't have been more pleased with the service, ship and itinerary. Having sailed with Carnival before and other cruise lines, we ...

Just back from the Athens to Barcelona cruise Oct 2016. Boat is very nice. Great condition as new (even so all of the foyer carpeting had to be replaced during our cruise). Lots of room and rarely felt crowded. Drinks - beer, wine, cocktails & pop very expensive. Also got stuck paying 24% VAT tax so Carnival removed drink package option. The Thirsty/Red Frog beer was amazing. Food. ...

Best Carnival cruise experience (customer service wise) to date!

This cruise was a new experience for us (never been to Europe) and absolutely wonderful! I am starting to realize just how "ship-based" cruising experiences are opposed to the company that is hosting the sailing (i.e. Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Norwegian, etc.). Me and my 62 year old mother went on this cruise, and we were very pleased with most about this cruise and the ship. CUSTOMER ...

Great Itinerary; too bad Carnival skipped Turkey.

Great cruise, skipped turkey while other cruise ships continue to go there. We changed planes in Istanbul, felt safe. Theater is substandard. 2 levels instead of three with bad sight lines. Closet space has been reduced to accommodate air conditioners. Other than that, a great ship. Food service in main dining room has improved. We had Paul as a our dinner waiter and his service was ...

Very quiet and smooth sailing. Lovely decor. Paradise 4 kids with the waterpark. The cabin was same as other cruise lines. Variety of food in Carvery was excellent compared to other liners. Just played awefull band stand music from the 50 s over and over and over in the restaurant. That drove us and the staff that works there MAD! The main theatre was a total disaster. There were NO seat in there ...

Nice cruise ship, attractive itinerary but disappointing experience

We chose this cruise for two reasons, firstly it was a new ship and secondly the destinations. Although we had cruised many times and had taken 6 previous trips with Carnival we had never cruised in the Mediterranean and thought it would be nice to visit the noted ports of call. The ship was not a disappointment, very well appointed, well maintained and with a good variety of places and ...

Vista: a Great Ship

I had a great cruise on the Vista and would definitely go on her again. I will now tell you about the things I liked and did not like as much about the Vista. The Ship - I really liked the look of the Vista from the outside, from the shore side. Also I thought the outside decks and amenities were great. I loved the Havana pool bar and outside area. One really good thing that the Vista ...

Cruise Mistake

Chose this cruise as it was a new ship and we thought the price was good. The ship, food, entertainment and service was a big disappointment to both of us. This was our eighth cruise, our first and last with Carnival. They can learn a lot from there competitors as a lack of training was obvious where the staff especially in the dining areas were concerned. The so called entertainment at night, ...

Great Family Cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was our first cruise and we loved it. We travelled with our 2 young children - aged 2 and 3. We had a family Harbour room (2400) with large balcony which was perfect. A bunk bed and sofa bed for the children. For us there was lots of wardrobe space with hangers. (yes you might have to double up a few shirts!) These rooms have access to the Family Harbour lounge where you could get breakfast ...
